R1100Gs manual suggestions

I recently purchased a 1998 R1100gs w/ 36k and very little service history. I plan on a complete service when it arrives. It's still in transit. What is the best manual for these bikes? I have a Haynes and a chiltons for airheads but nothing this new. I have seen the service DVDs recommended here that I will most likely buy as well. Just wanting recommendations from those of you that know. Is the factory book the best or is a Haynes sufficient? Thanks

Both the Haynes and the bmw repair manual. What one lacks the other has it, from my own experience as a shadetree mechanic.

Thanks for all the help. Between PDF emails and hard copies from other members I should be set. This site truly never let's you down.
